Fawkes puppies are 3 weeks old.

Our little ones are growing up so quickly!
The puppies have started eating puppy gruel and really enjoy making a BIG mess. Fawkes is very thankful that Esme loves to play house and helps clean the puppies after each meal.

This is our little prince Wash. Wash loves to sleep on his back he is very cute.

Princess Pixie is our littlest puppy, she loves to check out what all her big siblings are into.

Princess Libby is almost the same size as Pixie, this week she was our little camera hound.

Princess Lady reminds me of Lady and the Tramp. Very cute.

Princess Scarlet is the largest female puppy, she loves to play and have a good time.

This week the puppies will be making lots of fun messes,they will have their first real bath and be micro chipped.
The puppies are starting to be more active in between naps and will be having short periods of playtime in the living room. Like all little babies they play for short periods of time and then take long naps.
For more pictures be sure to visit our photo album.

As of today we have 2 puppies that are still looking for homes. If you are interested in our puppies please send me an email at

We are all looking forward to our Open House weekend August 7-8th when we get to meet our future puppy owners and they get to select their new family members.
Watch for pictures of the puppies all groomed and pretty next week.

Fawkes puppies are 2 weeks old.

Fawkes and her little ones are doing great! They are starting to crawl and explore the world around them just a little bit, more than Momma wants them to anyway.
The puppies are starting to make cute little baby growls, that sound like a cat purring, and little puppy barks.
This week the puppies received their first collars and nicknames.
We think that nicknames are soo much nicer than calling the puppies numbers.
Fawkes puppies are all nicknamed after apple trees because they were conceived under the apple tree in our yard.

This is Fawkes little boy, his name is Wash. Wash is named after the Washington Apple tree.
My son Sam is also a huge Firefly fan, so he was very excited about using Wash as a nickname.

This week I took pictures of the girls in order of size.
This is the largest girl this week, her nickname is Scarlet.

This little girl is just starting to open her eyes.
Lady is nicknamed after the Pink Lady Apple.

This little cutie is Libby, nicknamed after the Liberty Apple. She is the second smallest puppy.

Pixie, nicknamed after the Pixie Crunch Apple, was the smallest puppy of the litter at birth. Pixie is very quickly gaining ground on Libby and may be not be the smallest puppy for long.

On Sunday, after their big siblings went home, the puppies were very happy to move into the big puppy play pen. Right now the play pen is rather small 24"x24" but in the next few days the playpen will expand to 24"x48." The crib bumper will stay on the playpen until the puppies are big enough that their little heads do not fit through the the slats, Mom really likes the soft bumper to lean up against as well ;-). The playpen will stay medium sized until the puppies are about 4 weeks old, then it will grow to it's largest size(48"x48") and we will add a potty park to one side.
This week I took way too many pictures of the puppies but I managed to cut it down to 50 or so for the photo album. I even took pictures of the puppies with soda cans so families can get an idea of how big the puppies are right now.

As of this morning Wash and 2 of the little girls are still looking for their forever homes. Please feel free to email me with any questions that you might have, my email address is

Rose's Gems went home.

The puppies and I went to the park Tuesday where we met our friend Wendy.
We had lots of fun!

All of Rose's puppies went home July 17th. It was a lot of fun to touch base with all of the families before the puppies went home.
Today it is very quiet at our house. Rose has been busy napping on the bed and has enjoyed being pampered. Rose has been very quiet as well, I think that she really enjoyed being able to say good by to her puppies as each one went home with their new families.
To keep busy we have been getting all the puppy gear washed and ready for the new litter of puppies that has just opened their eyes. We washed all the bowles, crates and potty parks with the power washer this morning. I am on my 3rd load of laundry, the first two loads were blankets and towels and now we are washing all the toys.
When it is all dry we will pack all the big puppy toys away for just a few weeks, then it will be time to play again

Rose's Little Gems are 6 weeks old!

It is hard to believe the puppies are 6 weeks old already!
This week the puppies had their first car ride, even if it was just to the vet. The puppies had a full health check and their first shots.
The puppies are looking forward to a trip to the park if the weather is nice this week. If it is icky, I told them we would just have to make a trip to Petsmart and buy some chew toys.

Jasper is the only puppy from this litter still looking for his forever home.
Jasper is a great puppy that loves to explore and play. After playing he likes snuggle up to my feet and take a nap.

This work of art is the puppy formerly known as Diamond, she has picked out her family and has her forever name, Lily.
Lily is very excited to find out a pediatrician is, she wants to know if they love kisses.

This is the puppy formerly known as Opal, her new forever name is Lily Bear.
Lily Bear says it is really funny that I always called her and her sister by the same name and now they have very similar names. Lily Bear is very excited to learn all about softball, and wants to know what High School is.

Moka(formerly Ruby) is looking forward to learning all there is to know about doll clothes and coffee.

Chipper was known as Topaz. Chipper is looking forward to walks in the park and meeting lots of new friends.

Prince Beau is looking forward to meeting is half sister Belle. Beau loves to charm everybody and is very excited about learning what a Minnesota is.

This week the puppies have been exploring more and finally were able to meet the ducks. I am not sure if the puppies just wanted to give the ducks kisses or if they were trying to herd them somewhere but it sure was funny.
The ducks let the puppies get really close up before they would scatter.
Of course then we had to find some yummy treats for the ducks because they played so nice.

This week I took over 300 shots of the puppies but I managed to cut it down to just over 170 pictures.
I want to warn you, they are really getting good at stealing hearts!

Have a great week,

Fourth of July Puppies!

Boy did Fawkes keep us on our toes. She really wanted her puppies to have a special birthday that nobody could possibly forget.
Fawkes temperature dropped to 98.3 on Saturday July 3rd and she followed me everywhere I went, so I ended up staying in the living room most of the day. The whole family stayed up until midnight and then the guys went to bed. I ended up putting blankets and pillows down on the floor and laying next to Fawkes. Fawkes and I watched Monk then Stargate Atlantis and some show that was really bad that reminded me of Dungeons and Dragons.
At 3 am the infomercials started, I guess Fawkes thought they were boring because just after 3 am her first puppy arrived.

It was a beautiful little girl. Fawkes had about an hours rest before the next little girl arrived.
The last three puppies arrived 35 minutes apart. Fawkes was soo tired but very happy to finally have the puppies she has been waiting for.

Fawkes and her little ones are doing great. Fawkes had 4 little girls and 1 handsome little boy.
We started a photo album for Fawkes Puppies too!

I also made an album for a few shots of the puppies older brothers and sisters!

The puppies are this big!

We have 4 puppies still avalible from this litter, if you are interested please send me an email and I will send you a copy of our puppy contract.

Have a great week,
